Game manual attatched please include for next update.

Disk 2 is incorrect, it is the cracked version of "Narco Police". Please supply a correct disk 2 image, otherwise I can't support your version.

The SPS IPF images for the 2 disk (A500 pack) version are hosted on the Turran FTP server. This is a link to those files from my Onedrive.

That version is already supported in the patch, I specifically need Christoph's version.

Oh my gosh, that's wired. I never used disk 2 - it seems that some kind of fool overwrote it with narc.

I reconstructed it now with kryoflux. Here is the whole image:

I hope that Disk 1 isn't a cracked version or something like this. At the moment when the imager runs it says "unknown version" and won't make a image of disk 1.

Snoopy1234 (reporter)

After testing the latest image provided I suggest it is the 1 disk version.
There is a post on EAB commenting about the differences in the speed of the "Batarang" throwing on the 1 and 2 disk versions. The original 2 disk version was unproportionally fast and was fixed in the later 1 disk version. This latest upload exhibits the later 1 disk style in AF.

This doesn't help the version compatibility though...

note ~0013028

christoph gleisberg (reporter)

Thanks for your opinion on that, so I wait for check from Stingray and if he says that you're right I will rewrite original IPF on my Disk1. Have many thanks for your tests :)

note ~0013029

Snoopy1234 (reporter)

No worries. for reference note the mention of protection differences between versions in the post.

Please leave out any speculation here, it just messes up the tickets with irrelevant and incorrect information, thank you!

It is not the 1 disk version (before requesting the correct disk 2 image, I have of course checked the version of the game). Current disk 2 image is OK, I will check if it is really an unsupported version and if so, update the patch.

note ~0013031

StingRay (developer)

It's indeed an unsupported version, file sizes differ from SPS 0006, 0019 and 1730 versions. The patch will be updated in due time.

note ~0013056

Denis (reporter)

It's very probably the very first retail release, it uses a speedlock instead of a copylock + AmigaDOS.

I remember contacting you Sting a long time ago about supporting this version.

I have proper disk images if you want them (no IPF, the disk format is unsupported)
